Ms Walter criticises the government-funded experiments that will study the environmental consequences of field-scale cultivation of herbicide- tolerant GM crops. She accuse them of being unscientific because they do not include baseline measurements of diversity and because the sites are open to long-range movements of organisms between the GM and control fields.
